Cool Weather Color Blocking at the Office

Outfit Inspirations - Color Blocking - Brickellista Files

It’s been a warm winter even for us in Miami. The on-again off-again gloomy rain showers followed by bits of chilly weather is a call for misery – I know I’m SO dramatic. If you are like me, none of this matters during the week because my office is kept at Eskimo temperatures year round. Luckily for you, this means I have a bunch of chilly weather outfits ready to debut! My favorite thing to do is color block with bright neons however, this week I want to be more muted at the office and embrace the chilly weather with my latest burgundy blazer addition.

The blazer I’m wearing is Theory but I am loving this similar blazer from ASOS.  If you are on a wine (color) kick like me, check out these haute pants.  My suggestion on finding the perfect work bag is to find a sturdy carry all which looks like a briefcase. As you move up the corporate ladder (go girl!) slinging something over your shoulder (like a tote bag) is not professional – especially in a board room. I am obsessed with the Burberry satchel I purchased a few years ago. It has been my savior because it holds it all – laptop with charger and mouse, file folders, planner, makeup, extra shoes, a 5 lbs pup, and a unicorn. It’s a serious bag that screams “I mean business.” Here is a similar satchel and if you are looking to splurge go for this Burberry bag which holds it all! I use my bag for everything and it is great for travel. I suggest investing in a bag that works for you and your needs.
